I believe for over 70 years, Natchez, Mississippi was graced with the most interestingly amazing grandma ever; my Grandma Charity.  Grandma Charity was never acknowledged by the Governor of Mississippi or the Natchez City Council.  No, Grandma Charity never knew fame.  But, she definitely possessed super powers of wisdom and tons of unconditional love.  And, not one person who interacted with her was able to resist improving themselves.  Even though Grandma Charity is no longer with us, her selfless deeds continue to fuel and influence many generations.  So, on Grandparents’ Day 2009, Grandma Charity is dubbed as Grandparent of the Century.

Yes, I know the 2009 Daytime Emmy Awards Winners have been revealed.  I categorically disagree with the winner of the 2009 Daytime Emmy Best Drama Award.  Obviously, someone made a mistake; for the Young and the Restless is dramatic realism at its best.  The Y & R story threads are carefully woven with exciting twists and turns and always chock-full of lessons to learn.  My Effervesce Award visual poetry was created to eternally honor the Young and the Restless as the number one soap opera of all time.
